Tekran has provided more ambient and CEM systems than any other supplier worldwide.

About Us

Foundations

Tekran was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1989 to develop custom analytical instrumentation for environmental analysis. Our first analyzer, the Tekran 2537, was introduced in 1993 and is now widely accepted as the gold standard for automated ambient air analysis of mercury. Tekran continues to expand and improve our product lines, which are focused exclusively on instruments and systems for mercury measurement. We now offer systems for ambient air mercury speciation monitoring, automated analysis of total mercury and methyl mercury in environmental samples, total mercury in natural gas, and mercury continuous emission monitoring of coal-fired power plants and other industrial emission sources. We also offer a wide range of secondary equipment to support our main product lines.

Who We Are

Tekran Instruments Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced systems for ambient air, laboratory analysis, and point-source mercury monitoring. With pioneering expertise in cold vapor atomic fluorescence detection, Tekran has become the trusted source for accurately and reliably measuring ultra-trace levels of mercury. Tekran has provided more automated air analyzers and Hg-CEM monitoring systems than any other supplier worldwide.

What We Do

Tekran is an international leader in environmental measurement technology, serving the needs of industry, government and research institutions with applications ranging from pure research to primary manufacturing. We revolutionized continuous mercury monitoring through the use of cold vapor atomic fluorescence spectrophotometry and pure gold preconcentration. Tekran’s systems for ultra-trace measurement of mercury in ambient air, stack emissions and environmental samples are extraordinarily sensitive and robust with detection limits of less than 1 picogram absolute and practical immunity to interfering compounds.

Leadership

Tekran is known worldwide for the accuracy and dependability of our equipment and will continue to exceed customer expectations. From developing the industry’s first proven ambient air analyzer and mercury Hg-CEMs, Tekran has been at the forefront of the mercury measurement industry since 1992. For example, the Tekran 3310 Elemental Mercury Calibration Source was chosen by the US National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) as the “NIST Prime” which is used to certify all other Hg-CEM calibration sources.
Tekran’s research and development efforts continue to be headed by cofounders Frank Schaedlich and Dan Schneeberger. Our unique solutions and industry leading designs have been awarded numerous patents. With our growing staff of research engineers and technicians, the Tekran team leads the way with employee commitment to innovation, quality and customer service. As we pursue future opportunities, we know Tekran has the people, technology and resources to measure up to your standards and ours.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Tekran - Model 1110 - Synchronized - Two Port Sampling System

The Tekran Model 1110 Synchronized Two Port Sampling System gives the Model 2537 Mercury Vapor Analyzer the ability to sample two unique sources. Switching between the two sources is synchronized with the instrument sampling cycle and is fully programmable by the user. This is particularly useful for flux chamber studies to measure inlet and outlet concentrations, or gradient flux measurements at different heights. If desired, multiple 3-way valves ...

Tekran - Model 2700 - Automated Methyl Mercury Analysis System

The Tekran 2700 Methyl Mercury Analysis System offers an automated solution for complex and time consuming manual techniques. The 2700 is a fully-integrated, gas chromatography, cold-vapor atomic fluorescence spectrophotometer (GC-CVAFS). The 2700 can analyze distilled waters, extracted or distilled tissues and solids, and allows direct analysis of suitable water samples. The Tekran 2700 (MDL=0.004 ng/L) is operated via state-of-the-art, intuitive ...

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

Mercury monitoring for manual analysis of air traps

The Tekran 2600 versatility is evident with the economical and convenient configuration for manual analysis of air samples collected on gold cartridges. Converting the instrument allows calibration by simple injection of gaseous Hg using the Tekran 2505. Once analyzed, the gold cartridges are immediately ready for redeployment.

Mercury monitoring for on-site remediation

Fugitive emissions can be a health concern during removal and disposal of mercury-contaminated material at remediation sites. Thus, remediation projects either indoors or outdoors often require on-site, real-time mercury air monitoring with a Tekran 2537. This assures permitted levels are not exceeded during waste processing and human exposure levels are below government regulated toxicity thresholds. Often multiple sites must be monitored continuously. The Tekran 1115 Multi-Port Sampler is the ideal tool for...
